For courses in Advanced Educational Psychology, Learning Theory and Cognition and Instruction.


The market-leading textbook on learning theories applied to education, Human Learning, Sixth Edition, covers a broad range of theories supported by the author’s uniquely lucid writing style which engages readers and helps them learn the book’s content meaningfully and elaboratively.


Within this new sixth edition, readers will find significant updates to reflect the most current research and new theories in the field; expansion of the chapter on cognition and memory; re-organization of Piaget and Vygotsky content into two separate chapters; a core section on teaching critical thinking skills; and the discussion of technology-based instructed has been significantly revised and expanded in this edition. Instructors and students alike can feel confident in learning about learning theories from this best-selling author, whom over the years, has received many unsolicited e-mail messages from students who tell her how much they’ve enjoyed and appreciated previous editions of Human Learning.
